Nearly three decades into his multi-faceted career as a record executive, song placer, music supervisor music publisher, marketing and promotion expert, and Founder and CEO of the thriving indie pop/dance label Dauman Music, Jason Dauman is still breaking fresh ground, scoring hits with both legendary superstars and cultivating the careers of promising new artists. Since its founding in 2005, Dauman Music – which inked its worldwide distribution deal with Republic/Motown/Universal Music Group in 2007 – has been a nonstop force on the Billboard Dance charts, with over 100 hit singles during the past ten years and dozens of Music Week Pop Chart hits.
Last year, aside from dominating the dance charts, Dauman Music impacted the jazz and pop markets in monumental ways. Early in 2017, the label partnered with L&L Music to lead the promotional campaign for Jazz singer and Vegas headliner, Clint Holmes’s newest album “Rendezvous,” produced by multiple Grammy award winner Gregg Field. Featuring legendary artists such as Jane Monheit, Ledisi, Dave Koz, DeeDee Bridgewater and The Count Basie Orchestra, the album was a constant chart success throughout its campaign life which culminated in its nomination for two 2018 Grammy awards, as well as various TV interviews with Tavis Smiley and radio coverage with iHeartRadio and Sirius XM’s Sinatra Broadway and Jazz channels. Also during 2017, Dauman Music had a top 25 Billboard Pop Radio Indicator chart hit with Texas band, Mayberry’s smooth and energetic “Playing With Fire.” Dauman Music’s efforts helped this band achieve a top 30 Billboard radio indicator chart hit.
In the few years prior, Dauman Music has worked with an exciting array of performers and songwriters from a wide variety of genres. Included on their dynamic roster are legendary artists Melissa Manchester, Al Jarreau and Snoop Dogg; classic pop songwriters Siedah Garrett (“Man in the Mirror”) and Makeba Riddick (Rihanna, Beyonce); and pop veterans Sean Kingston, Frankie J, Jeff Timmons (98 Degrees), Fat Joe, Taylor Dayne and Tiffany. The label also has upstart artists Cheyenne Elliot, granddaughter of Dionne Warwick and cousin of Whitney Houston. Dauman worked on the Cheyenne project with onetime Producer of the Year Grammy winner Narada Michael Walden.
After making his initial inroads into the industry as host of the popular cable celebrity talk show “The Sound Factory” and Hollywood Goes to a Party” Dauman’s guest included Jane Fonda, Raquel Welch, Lionel Richie, Regis Philbin, Michael Eisner, Marie Osmond, George Hamilton, among others. Dauman launched his career in the unique, specialized field of song placing. Working independently and later for Universal Music Publishing, he represented a vast array of entertainment personalities and developed his keen abilities to perfectly match artist and songwriters. Over the years, Dauman’s “A-list” clients included U2, Bruce Springsteen, Burt Bacharach, Billy Steinberg, Tom Kelly, Garth Brooks, Glen Ballard Tom Kelly, Rick Nowles, John Wesley Harding, and Maria McKee, The Jackie Boyz, Makeba Riddick, Oscar-nominated songwriter Allan Rich and Broadway composer Frank Wildhorn (“Jekyll & Hyde,” “The Scarlet Pumpernickel”).
Dauman’s first high profile “match” was placing Diane Warren and Albert Hammond’s “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” with Starship, and his early successes included “Don’t Turn Around” for Ace of Base; the Garth Brooks tune “If Tomorrow Never Comes” (later recorded by Barry Manilow); Allan Rich and Jud Friedman’s “I Don’t Have The Heart,” a #1 pop hit by James Ingram (at one time the longest-running adult contemporary single in Billboard A/C chart history); and Billy Steinberg/Tom Kelly’s anthem “I’ll Stand By You,” a co-write with Chrissie Hynde that endures as one of The Pretenders’ biggest hits which has since been recorded by Girls Aloud, Rod Stewart, Shakira, Carrie Underwood, Shirley Bassey, Patti Labelle among others.
Since segueing from the song plugging and publishing worlds into launching and running his own thriving label, Dauman has developed strong passions for the multitude of “hats” he wears. More than simply the visionary executive driving Dauman Music up the charts, the New York and L.A. raised industry veteran has enjoyed all hands-on aspects of making things happen, from working with producers and remixers, video production, promotion, public relations and social media to product placement and licensing.
PRESIDENT & CEO
Dauman Music’s first release, “Tell it to the Moon,” became one of the Top-10 most played songs of the year on XM Satellite Radio’s BPM Charts. With seven chart singles in 2008, the company topped such labels as Warner (six), Jive (six) and Columbia (six) on the Hot Dance/Club play imprint category. In a rather consistent basis, Dauman was able to place three different songs in the Billboard Top 50 Club Charts on the same week, representing six percent of the Billboard Dance Chart hits.
Building upon those powerful foundations and continuing to delight club-goers while breaking intriguing new artists, Dauman Music has achieved numerous breakthroughs including Top 10 Billboard hits Kendra Erika, Emily Perry, Frankie, Veronica Jensen, Henri, Ralphi Rosario, Ashley J, Athena, Carmen Perez among many others. Other major Billboard hits include Tiffany, Snoop Dogg and George Hodos, Frankie J and Melissa Molinaro, Melissa Manchester, Al Jarreau, Jeff Timmons of 98°, Arianny Celeste and Dave Allen, Gerina and Nomad, Amy Weber and Sean Kingston, Taja Sevelle, Raphael, Olga, Korr-A, Joanna Krupa among many others.
“I grew up enjoying a wide variety of up-tempo music, so it was only natural after working strictly in pop music for many years that I would run a label devoted to electronic dance music and dance-oriented pop,” says Dauman. “When I first launched Dauman Music, the genre was an underdog, looked down upon by the industry, like an unwanted musical child. I devoted my energies to rallying behind it. I’m glad to say it’s not only no longer the underdog, but it’s everywhere, more popular than ever and still growing. It’s been a pleasure witnessing the growth of electronic music.”
“While I have always gravitated towards strong melodies and production, for me, powerful, emotional lyrics are at a premium,” he adds. “Beyond great material, I’ve found that the most successful artists are the ones who bring the perfect mix of ambition and vision into their artistry. I’m as excited and committed as ever to bringing great artists and performers to the dance/EDM Jazz and Commercial Pop market.”
